Signs and Symptoms

Signs and Symptoms

A possible symptom of uterine sarcoma is abnormal vaginal bleeding, such as bleeding or spotting between periods or after menopause. This symptom is more common with endometrial stromal sarcoma and undifferentiated sarcoma of the uterus than with uterine leiomyosarcoma. Some women have other abnormal vaginal discharge that doesn’t appear to have blood in it.

The following may be signs or symptoms of uterine sarcoma, but they are uncommon:

  • Pain in the pelvic area

  • A mass or a sense of fullness in the pelvic area or abdomen

  • Frequent urination

  • Pain when urinating or having a bowel movement

  • Pain during intercourse

Conditions other than cancer may cause these signs and symptoms. If you have any of these, see your doctor to find out the reason.
